Get the list of supported viewfinder resolutions.

The handle returned by a call to the camera_open() function.


The requested number of viewfinder resolutions to return in the resolutions array. You can use a value of 0 to determine the number of viewfinder resolutions supported by the camera.


The returned number of viewfinder resolutions supported by the specified camera.


A pointer to a camera_res_t array. The array is updated with the viewfinder resolutions supported by the camera. Ensure that you allocate an array with the same number of elements as specified in the numasked argument.

After you use this function to retrieve the viewfinder resolutions that are supported by the camera, you can configure the viewfinder size using camera_set_vf_property().

As of CAMERA_API_VERSION 3 (BlackBerry 10.3.0), this function deprecates camera_get_photo_vf_resolutions() and camera_get_video_vf_resolutions(). For more information about new and deprecated viewfinder functionality, see Viewfinder modes.

Ensure that the resolutions argument points to an array which has at least numasked elements allocated. To determine an appropriate size for this array, you can invoke this function in presizing mode by setting the numasked argument to 0 or the resolutions argument to NULL. When the function is invoked in this presizing mode, the maximum array size required is returned in the numsupported argument. You can then allocate an array of the appropriate size and invoke the function again with the numasked argument set to the value returned previously in the numsupported argument.


CAMERA_EOK when the function successfully completes, otherwise another camera_error_t value that provides the reason that the call failed.
